Bongo’s Bingo is officially returning to Glasgow and has announced the August dates this week. The infamous bingo rave night will return to its’ usual spot, SWG3, for five nights (and one day). As usual, Bongo’s Bingo promises wild escapism, impeccable vibes, banging tunes and unusual prizes for everyone to win.
Bongo’s Bingo launched in 2015 and has gained significant traction since. Most events are sold out around the UK, so getting a ticket can sometimes be difficult. With all the usual antics with the brilliant host and the dancers, dance intervals in-between an honest (but tipsy) game of bingo, the boozy shenanigans will be ones to remember.
Ravers can win anything and everything from Henry Hoovers to mobility scooters or karaoke machines: there are very little limits to the prizes. And if you win one of those 20ft wacky waveys, we’d love to see what it looks like in your back garden.
While we’re not sure how August is already less than two months away, six Glasgow shows have been added to celebrate Springtime at the Bongo’s Bingo extravaganza. Players are going to be subjected to some friendly competitiveness playing your good ol’ regular bingo, with the regular rave breaks and just overall organised chaos throughout.
Plus, August 18 will see a themed night called Night at the Movies, where ravers can dance to some iconic soundtracks of the best movies of all time, such as Shrek, James Bond and Mary Poppins. Do come along as your favourite film character, a random movie prop or just come dressed as popcorn: get creative!

Jonny Bongo, Bongo’s Bingo co-founder, says: “It’s crazy we’re already releasing our August shows in Glasgow at SWG3. Demand has been off the scale so far in 2023 and we’re getting set for our peak-time summer parties. Glasgow absolutely loves Bongo’s Bingo and we absolutely love Glasgow! We’ve got our Night At The Movies theme taking place across the UK too – this is the perfect time to dress up and get dancing to some of the most iconic move soundtracks of all time. It’s going to be epic.”
